PASSED!— Rep Andy Biggs (@RepAndyBiggsAZ) February 26, 2018
It is gratifying to join my colleagues of both parties as we change policy that saves lives. While many of the issues Congress debates are politically charged, we put our differences aside to pass bills such as the ‘Ashlynne Mike AMBER Alert in Indian Country Act.’ pic.twitter.com/1PaTioFEbM
Ms. Pamela Foster, the mother of Ashlynne Mike, has turned the grief she felt at her daughter’s abduction and murder into the hope of making the AMBER Alert program available everywhere in America. Without Ms. Foster’s bravery and perseverance, this bill would not be a reality.— Rep Andy Biggs (@RepAndyBiggsAZ) February 26, 2018
I thank her for her efforts – & those of @SenJohnMcCain, House leadership and staff, Chairman @RepGoodlatte & @HouseJudiciary Staff, my House colleagues, & many AZ advocates. We're assuring that ALL children are protected by the jurisdiction of the AMBER Alert system. #AZ05— Rep Andy Biggs (@RepAndyBiggsAZ) February 26, 2018
